July 27, 2012 Praying Mantis (Mantid) There are several different types, I think this one is a Chinese Mantid, I am basing that on length and the brown with green.
So interesting in X3...great capture!
Wonderful macro; another insect I've never seen!
Fabulous clarity! These kinds of creepy-crawlies I don't mind so much. :-)
First time seeing one of these... like a stick man in bug form:)
Very cool shot. This would have been great for the stick challenge.
What a cool catch! If I'm lucky I see one of these guys a year. So far no luck... Excellent details!
I've never seent that variety - wonderful find and capture
Oh wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see these occasionally, but I've never gotten a shot of them that I am happy with. You NAILED this one my friend - it's excellent. I don't think I've ever seen this species though - most that I see are bright green. Love it!
